[Debian-User] NTP problem
I'm having a problem connecting to the public NTP servers.
I have tried clock.redhat.com, time.windows.com (well...uhmm)
and ntp.debian.org. I use `ntpdate' to synchronise my system
when I connect to the ISP using dial-up. I have been using
the "-u" option consistently to query the NTP servers, but,
I get the error:
malaika:root# ntpdate -q -u ntp.debian.org
server 126.96.36.199, stratum 0, offset 0.000000, delay 0.00000
13 Jul 23:21:36 ntpdate: no server suitable for
Obviously, my ISP is blocking outgoing udp port 123. What, I
want to know is, does ntp.debian.org have another port open
that will redirect to 123. I will have to use iptables NAT
table to change the destination port, wonder if it is possible!
If anyone can suggest alternatives as well, it will do.
